I always think Markie is such a dork getting excited about buying his newest vid game or tech gadget…but I have to say, I’m so giddy with excitement over opening my new laptop box & turning it on. Must be how a guy feels popping his first cherry. Hehe…anyways, I just had to post about my new baby Dell. It’s a beautiful black Inspiron 17! So beautiful! Oh how I luv Dell & all their wonderful gadgets!

I'm seriously having a some whacked out sleeping issues...but I guess it doesn't help when I work nites & have a normal daytime schedule on days off, does it? :P I just can't fully become a nite owl while everyone else is still a daytime job-er, esp. Mark. We'll see once he grads & gets a job. In the meantime, I sleep what I can & get online when I can't. Big change & all. ;)

I was just posting on her b/c I had been looking at my homepage here & noticed the big discrepancies between my LJ title, all my titles, links lists & the background of my page. Hehe, it's no longer the "Padded Room days"...sad, but true...so I'm thinking I need to seriously update my background & rename my page & all...gah, that will take a century for me to decide on. I'm so indecisive these days it seems.

Like, I just went scrub-shopping with Mark & had a blast & now I'm regretting buying certain tops without bottoms & shoes b/c they may not be the right color. I mean, geez, WTF is wrong with me? Is this the end of the world & the last time I can buy scrubs? Not like I can't return/take things back. *lesigh* So much stress being an adult with a job! Decisions, decisions, decisions! :D

Anyways, I need to organize my net shit bigtime, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Do you? *shakeshead*

And another year begins...

So, obviously I lied & didn't update like I said I would. Anoter 6 months passed...oops.

Anyways, I woke up & couldn't get back to sleep so I started surfing wedding blogs for ideers & entertainment...and adultfiction.net is down so I'm bored & thought I'd stop by my ghosttown LJ.

Not much going on in my life except my nursing job & trying to get my wedding planned/organized...and that's not been too productive. Got engaged last V'day & another Feb 14th has passed without any real wedding plans.

We set a date, but haven't officially asked friends to be part of the wedding party, haven't set a city (torn between something here or something destination) or any venues. I have to say I've been a little depressed about planning it, which is sad in & of itself. But I've been hesitant to make any plans because everyone wants to have it their way/help & I'm a bit overwhelmed with the new job AND a wedding to plan. I'm to the point where I just want to be married & would be happy with an elopement or city hall-type wedding, but my dear Mark is set on a more traditional wedding, even if it's small & intimate. When did I become the indifferent male in the 'ship & he the frilly girl? Anyways...I've been with him for over 4yrs & I'm just sick of being single/engaged. We don't even officially live together (even though I'm always there/here) & I'm ready to be an old married couple, which I feel like already. *sigh*

But, I'm starting to see a tiny light at the end of the tunnel. I've recently started to become more interested in attempting to plan this shindig...slightly. I've really been holding out for an intimate destination wedding & may have found a wedding planner who can deliver. We would both love a beach wedding, but I get sick of all the cliche beach wedding packages. Sorry, not interested in hearts in the sand & rose petals tossed around. What is this? Some Fabio romance novel from the 1980's? *gag* But this planner seems to have a classy version of a beach wedding package with many choices of colors & set-ups, FRESH flowers that the bride can even DIY (we all know I can't help the florist in me from popping out) & many custom options. I'm starting to get hopeful & excited.

Now if only I weren't having some insomnia...but the net always keeps me happy so I'll digress.

And on a more relatable note, I'm working on a "laminated list" (not sure the person I got the ideer from got this name, but I suppose it has something to do with how you'd cherish your favs/crushes pics/posters & perhaps laminate it...anyways...), a compiled list of names & pics of hotties/celebs (both male & female, since we all know I'm borderline bi & appreciate the beauty of the female body :P). Not that it's vital to my ability to function, but it's fun & very enjoyable to look at purdies. ;)

And, I need to do some serious updating of profiles/accounts for here, Facebook & such. I'm bad about putting shit in there initially, but then neglecting it forever...which you would never guess back in SD days...oh well. Don't really feel like racking my brain right now about favs & new info so I'll procrastinate as always. 25yrs from now, Facebook will still have my status as engaged & childless & LJ will have my profile av as ones from "300". :P

And...j/k, no more "and"s...

2 Years!!! Holy Shizzle, Batman!

I was just on another LJ community & was reading how others just post all the time about their lives, no matter how dull, and remembered that I never post here. Hehe mostly communicate with others thru Facebook or emails. Oh well.

Anyways, in case some of you need a lil' updating on me, I'll do so here...as best I can. It's been 2 years so lots has changed.

In July of last year, I quit the florist job that I'd had for almost a decade b/c of conflicts of interest with the boss man & a few other coworkers. It was so darn hard & I hated every minute of it, but it was time & something had to be done to keep my sanity. So I applied to other florists in town hoping they'd jump on the opportunity to take one of Four Seasons' long-standing employees, but alas, it wasn't the right time of the year & no one was interested as I'd hoped. *lesigh* So I remained jobless till November when I got interviewed & then hired by Victoria's Secret. It's not the best company to work for but I love their products & most of my coworkers are da' shi . Still working there, but have changed to very very part-time b/c...da da da...I finally graduated in May of this year & got a nursing job in the ICU. Woot! I'm so very excited! I just finished orientation & will start my first day tomorrow 7a-7p. I have to get up at the crack of dawn (not looking forward to that), but anxious/excited to be a real nurse.

And I also got engaged (finally) to Mark on Valentine's Day 6 minutes before the 15th. Although it seems corny, I wasn't expecting it at all. We'd looked at rings recently & actually bought one, but he wouldn't let me have it or tell me how soon he'd propose. I had been working all V'day week (just like with the florist) at VS & was exhausted, so I was shocked to see him get down on one knee & pull out my ringbox. :) Not real sure on any wedding details, but the date is tentatively set for Aug. 20,2010...but that could change.

Mark's going to graduate next May so we're all excited about that & trying to make plans as to our options & plans for our future. Too much to think about now. Brain overload.

I've had a lot of other more minor details change in my life, but that is the bulk. Hope all of you are doing well. I haven't heard from a lot of you in ages (and vice versa, I know). Life gets in the way & time flies.

I'll talk to you guys in another 2 years. :P

School sux azz!!!

Sorry, I haven't written at all this semester. Maternal Child classes have sucked major azz...and now I have to repeat b/c one of my profs has screwed me over this entire semester. Death to her! Now I've got to repeat a class I'm not even going to specialize in. I'll do fine this time but there's no point in my even retaking it. I'm not going to ever use this info on the job (and most of my classmates never will either).

Anyways, so I'm not graduating this May like I was supposed to. It's now December of 2008. Boo! Yay for dumb me & all the nursing school BS...

School, it's baaaaaaaccccccckkkkkkk...

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted pics (dialup is a pain in the arse) or posted much (not much to tell).

Just wanted to see how all of ya'll were after the start of school. Mine began Monday & it's ok so far. Still have the whiny babies in class who can't not bitch & the confused & dumb who can't understand easy instructions. Seems lonely now that my graduating class & those I retook Adult 1 with for the HESI (junior level test that I had failed a year ago & had to retake last semester) are split apart once more. The feeling I get from class & such is odd. Makes me feel a lil' homesick (tho not sure y) & sad. It makes me think of the good ole days of just starting out college & being all naive & unjaded. Now school sometimes makes me wanna hurt people. :P Hehe I'm so sentimental sometimes. :D

Anyways, hope ur all good. I hope u have good news to tell, as do I the next time we post. :D

mrs_curls
Good God man! WTF is up with SD again? It's up & there's no announcement or link to the temp board or the LJ site. Gah! I knew I shoulda bookmarked 'em. Can't post to the PR but could on the art site & the fics...hmm...

I'll post about vacay & give some pics later...after I've rested up & relaxed a lil'. It was interesting, that's for sure. :P

SD-1...RIP :'(

Holy schiz! SD-1 is gone & buried (tho there's a temp board). Gah, wow! I didn't think I'd see this day (tho I knew I would eventually). It's so sad & disheartening. :( And I don't know what happened other than a hacker again but oh well. What's done is done & another chapter of my life has closed. *balls like a baby*

I must be alone now & compose myself...:'(

*sigh* Gah, bored again here at work...and wasting my time posting here. :P Not much to say, just bored & wishing I'd gotten a nurse extern job at the VA (Veterans Hospital), but it looks like I'm gonna have to wait a lil' longer...*sigh* Life here at the florist is getting rougher & rougher. :(

Hope ya'll are good. I'm too lazy to post or email you guys. Go figure. :P

Suffer the little kitten named "Jack"
Eva Green
mrs_curls
Ok some animal ranting...

Firstoff, ya'll know I love animals & don't normally want any harm to become them, right? Secondly, most of ya'll know my house is a zoo with 4 dogs & a cat.

Ok, that being said, I have to say I would like nothing better than to rid our house of the stray kitten my mom found in the rain a few days ago. And I mean "rid" by any means necessary. Earlier tonite, I was so frustrated with my mom for wanting yet another animal in this house, that I woulda stabbed that lil' guy & spread his insides all over my mom's bedroom wall. Grr...severe, I know, but I'm sick of adding to the horde we have. We've got plenty & said we'd stop at 3 dogs, but now have an additional dog & cat. Now, Mom wants to add another cat!

The annoying part is that my mom is always affectionate & dotting on our pets till they get older. Then the rest of us are in charge of taking care of the spoiled brats she's produced. *sigh* She doesn't even like cats so you know this thing won't hold her attention long. *grumbles*

And Mark's allergic so I told her he wouldn't be coming over much. Oh well, another reason not to be here. :P She even had the nerve to ask if that's why Mark didn't come in the other nite. Uhm, DER! She knows he's very allergic to cats, but whatever. Play naive. See how long that works for you...

Anyways, I'm sick of my mom's overzealous love of anything breathing & furry. And I love animals but know there are limits (especially for me...). So if anyone wants a cat, knows a way to subtly kill a cat or how I can get her to hate it, I'd love to know ASAP. :D Thanks!
